BCLCK: 160 x 20,
Uncore voltage 1.25V,
IOH Voltage Override: 1.150
RAM voltage: 1.62 OCZ Platinum triple channel DDR3 7-7-7-24, 1600 MHz (memory multiplier set to 10)
Turbo Boost: ON
All cores on
I followed all the rules I've picked up by reading the guides and whatnot, just wanted to run these settings by you all to make sure I'm not over-doing the voltage in the IOH area....'cause I'm not really sure what that is.
I know that RAM voltage can't go past 1.65 and that uncore should be within .5 V of RAM voltage. My idle temps are 31, 27, 34, 27 with my V8 fan up to maximum.
Is this a good overclock? I'm running Prime95 blend test right now.
If so, I think I'd like to make a short guide for overclocking the i7 920 on the Intel DX58SO because allllll the guides I read were for ASUS boards and some other boards. I guess this means those are the overclockers' board of choice, but it'd be nice to have a resource for those of us with DX58SOs.
Cancel the party. I failed Prime95 after less than a minute. What setting should I change?
EDIT: Okay, i moved the RAM multiplier back to 8 for a RAM speed of 1280 MHz and Prime95 hasn't quit yet. I'm guessing that was the problem. Of course, it's only been going for a half hour, but with the multiplier set at 10, it quit in less than a minute, so I'm guessing it's my RAM settings.
What is the logical step to take from here? Would it be to raise my uncore? I want my RAM to operate at the 1600 MHz spec'd by the manufacturer. Do I need to raise the RAM voltage to 1.66? There's no 1.65 option on my motherboard and 1.65 is the maximum safe voltage, right? Oh lawd
Personally, I have 0 experience with the i7, That said, I have a screenshot showing my friends voltages @ 4.02ghz. Unfortunately the names of the voltages are covered....It looks however like his memory is @ 1.68
i sent him a text to see if he was awake, I was going to ask him what his settings were. But he has not replied so I will assume he's asleep. If your interested i can post them tomorrow. but I'm sure someone else may post by then.
